Wellness 2018

small coverThe Wellness Issue

Putting together this Wellness issue was such a sweet journey. We enjoyed recognizing and celebrating Rain Lily, a great urban farm, and their unique delivery service. Abby Love, an amazing local baker, pops in to share some favorite recipes (peach-crisp pie, anyone?) and gives us a tour of Barton Springs Mill and their impressive array of fresh-milled heirloom grains. We learn about neighbors coming together to heal a plot of land torn raw from disaster and sadness with the power of a community garden. And we speak to Chef Philip Speer about changes, hope and things learned on a personal journey. This and so much more. Welcome to the Wellness issue.
